Tips for baby nail care:

Newborn babies tend to have soft, flexible nails that grow astonishingly quickly and can get quite ragged and sharp. This means they can easily scratch themselves and even claw their faces, so its important to keep your baby’s nails clean and short. It’s not easy trying to hold a cross, wriggly baby while you delicately trim their teeny, weeny nails, but our professionals will take care and use the right products to get it done. The good news is, when your baby’s very small you can gently peel the ends off with your fingers. But then as your baby grows, you’ll need to start using special baby nail clippers; tiny, round-ended safety scissors or a fine emery board. Some parents also like using emery boards to smooth rough edges after cutting.

What shape should my baby’s nails be?

Keep the nails nice and straight, don’t go too short and avoid trimming around the curve of their finger. Be careful not to cut down the side of their toenail, as it can cause ingrown nails, and avoid digging into the sides of their nails as it can cause an infection.

Trim baby's nails without nipping fingers and toes?

Press the finger pad away from the nail and keep a firm hold on their hand. Try not to trim too low as the tip of your baby’s finger may bleed, which can lead to infection.
Newborn babies’ toenails are so soft they tend to curl over the end of the toe, which means it’s hard to tell which bit of the nail growth is still attached to the quick, so go slowly.

How often do I need to cut them?

Fingernails grow particularly fast so you’ll need to cut them more than once a week. Toenails though grow more slowly, so a couple of times a month is fine.

Don’t bite baby nails!

Don’t be tempted to bite your baby’s nails to keep them shorter, by doing this germs from your mouth could get into any tiny cuts on your baby’s fingers, possibly causing an infection. You also won’t be able to see what you’re doing, and you’ll find your baby’s fingernail is tiny compared to your teeth!
